Patient Comments (7)

The idea of service is a 4 letter word. Hereford cattle are treated better than people here. Asking to many quest ions gets you more visits so you can be charged more.

Dr merriment changed my life for the better!. I have never had a Dr. spend as much time with me. I have had back surgeries and chronic pain for years and he has got it under control with minimal medication. He is a genius Highly recommend him

I see David (NP) and truly trust him with my care. He has helped me tremendously. He doesn't just throw pain medication at you, he thoroughly assesses your and your condition and talks through your options. My nurse is always super nice and actually knows my name and what's going on with me,...more
